Lotus leaf: the 18th / 17th century was very much about status, power and wealth I wanted to show this by using this original lotus leaf from japan (its origin where a hand fan originally comes from) and combine it with this idea of totall decadancy of the 17th 18th century. I used iron wire to build the construction.

As I mentioned earlier, there was a lot of work involved in making a corset, which has now become a kind of mass product. I would like to show this by making a plaster corset myself. Experience the labor of making a corset yourself. In this work I wanted to merge the corset from Western culture with the lotus leaf originally from Japan. I have used kitchen yarn on purpose to represent the stereotype of how women have been perceived for centuries. Just like the fact that women had to wear this torture device.
